>From Fiumicino Airport (Leonardo da Vinci):

A slightly cheaper option is the slower train that has the final destination of either Orte or Fara Sabina. It will stop at a few small local stations heading into Rome, but IT DOES NOT stop at Termini Train Station. You will want to get off at Tiburtina station (about the 8th stop), and then follow the directions below first for Tiburtina station and then Termini station. Trains leave approximately every 15-30 minutes and cost approximately €4.70. Unless your budget is extrodinarily tight, we don't recommend this option as for an extra €2.50 you'll save an hour of travel time.

Don't forget to validate your ticket with the little orange or yellow boxes before you get on the train.

Duration: around 30 minutes on the direct train (express). Up to an hour on the slower train.
